Although I did not actually stay at the Elizabeth... I spent many hours there as it was the venue for my brothers wedding. The riad was beautiful, clean and had outstanding staff. Kamal the manager was outstanding and nothing was to much trouble for him. He went above and beyond with requests from family members organising taxis, offering advice and generally just being a lovely guy who got on beautifully with everyone. The owners John and Elizabeth were amazing. They are lovely couple and a rightfully proud of their beautiful riad.
I was in costant contact with them before our arrival and their replies were always prompt and informative.
I must also add that the meal we arranged on arrival was outstanding... also the finger buffet at the actual wedding reception was amazing. I ate and enjoyed everything served as did all of our group.
The riad is itself is within easy walking distance of the souks ( markets). I was initially very apprehensive about trying to barter but found at the end I didn't mind and enjoyed trying to get the best price. We only had one encounter when some stall owners tried to send us the wrong way but by then we had figured out how to get back ourselves and ignored them. The people on the whole were very friendly and approachable. We were respectful by covering our shoulders even though we knew we didn't need to. .. but I think when in that environment you should be considerate and mindful not to offend.
So did I enjoy the experience... absolutely!! Would I go back? Absolutely!! Thank you, Kamal, Elizabeth, John and other staff members for a memorable stay. I can't rate sleep quality as I didn't stay there.
